Both of Cambridge’s Santa Claus parades will take place in their usual styles this year, according to the city.
Residents are urged to keep safety in mind, and that masks are essential when six feet of physical distance isn’t practicable, according to provincial rules, according to a city announcement.
The Cambridge Santa Claus Parade will take place this Saturday, starting at 6 p.m. with the first float turning onto Hespeler Road from Dunbar Road.
The route will once again run up Hespeler Road before turning off at Langs Drive.
“The Cambridge Santa Claus Parade is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and the health and safety of our community is paramount to us,” organizers say in a note on their website. “Please note that details posted are subject to change, depending on Public Health guidelines and the COVID-19 situation.”
The second parade will occur in the Hespeler area of Cambridge on Dec. 4.
Beginning at noon, the procession for the Hespeler Santa Claus Parade will run down Queen Street from Groh Avenue until Sheffield Street.
On Saturday, Santa Claus will visit Kitchener, and the following Saturday, he will visit Waterloo.
Instead of running across both cities, the customary K-W Santa Claus parade will take place in reverse at two locations.
The event will take place at the Aud in Kitchener, and at RIM Park in Waterloo, with both activities starting at 10 a.m.
